Primary Junior and PYP/IB Teacher
About:Kitti received her Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) at Ryerson University in Early Childhood Studies. Kitti then went on to complete her Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) at Queen’s University, with a specialization in the Primary/Junior grade levels.
Following her graduation from Ryerson University, Kitti worked with both preschool and senior-aged elementary children and remained active in the child care community. After graduating from Queens University, Kitti taught Grade 6 Math and English at Internationella Engelska Skolan, an International School in Sweden, for two years. While at Internationella Engelska Skolan, she was responsible for preparing lesson plans, marking and leading a mentorship class.
Currently, Kitti is volunteering and supply teaching at Branksome Hall, an all girls school in downtown Toronto. Kitti’s work at Branksome Hall has allowed her to plan for and teach creative lessons within the Primary Years Program of the International Baccalaureate program.
Kitti has participated in several professional development workshops, such as ‘Tribes’ community building, and has obtained additional qualifications in special education and the Primary Years Program (PYP) International Baccalaureate Curriculum Model. These courses have allowed Kitti to develop her skills of altering methods of instructions and making lessons meaningful and relevant to the students.
Kitti’s professional experience as an ECE and Elementary teacher, as well as her pursuit of professional development accreditations has allowed her to work with students of all ages, background and abilities, and has framed her love of learning and passion to teach. Kitti believes that by creating lessons that are well suited for the students, they experience success at their own level and this encourages the students to be more involved in their own learning.
Outside the classroom, Kitti loves to travel, swim, volunteer within the education community, and explore nature.
